Work that Matters by WorqIQ

Each week hosts Shawn Murphy and Mark S. Babbitt from WorqIQ bring you insights and stories on how to create a positive experience of work for you and your team.

Dec 4, 2014

As the cliche; goes, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. This can be said about how we view the role of management in organizations. We want to change how we manage or lead, but I don't believe the pace of needed changes is keeping up with what employees, or stakeholders, want and expect. We can't continue to rely on 20th century management practices in the 21st century and expect the workplace to improve.

In this episode Chuck Blakeman author of Why Employees Are Always a Bad Idea: and Other Business Diseases of the Industrial guides us through where we need to shift our practices to be in line with what he calls the Participation Age.

This is a fascinating interview that’s sure to challenge some of your beliefs about business today.

Get ready to take notes. More great wisdom coming your way.
